To Pierce or Not To Pierce???
At what age do you think it is appropriate to get you Daughter's ears pierced if at all???
Same here Linda. My daughter is such a girly girl with all her bling bling and savvy apparel that she loves them. We got them done when she was 6 months as well. I guess I just figured I wanted to have my little girl all cute and dolled up as much as I could while I still could dress her up at the time LOL. Paid off though, she is very stylish!
We waited till they were old enough to decide themselves they just got them done at the end of July and they love them. Zayla just turned 3 and it was a week before Mylas 4th birthday.
I think waiting until SHE super expresses she wants them done, realizes how you have to clean them and care for them.. then you should get them done :)
I won't be piercing my daughters ears until she is old enough to ask for it and take care of them herself. That is what my parents did with me and It was a great opportunity for me to learn some responsibility. And in my own personal opinion I am not really a fan of how it looks on babies.
That's the best way to go about it. When they are infants, it's a bit easier because they don't realize they are there and usually don't play with them. My daughter is 3 now so I missed that deadline lol! I'm just gonna wait as well until she's old enough to start asking for them. And she may never ask for them. She might be one of those girls who don't really like wearing jewelry. So it's always better to wait :D
I can't say when is definitely okay to pierce (my husband wouldnt let me pierce my daughters' ears, he wants to wait until they are in their teens. However, if it is a very young girl, I would try to do it before she starts grabbing and holding things, so she doesnt mess with them too much as she is getting used to them.
